A hot tub is a fantastic way to treat stress and anxiety. Just relaxing for an hour a few times a week has shown to make a significant difference in both. But using hydrotherapy for physical ailments can be just as helpful as it is for mental ones. There are many sources of pain and discomfort that can get a lot of benefits from taking a nightly soak.
Hot Tub Therapy for Arthritis
People with arthritis stand to get a great deal of relief from using hydrotherapy. While this is one of the most common problems in the United States, it is also among the most debilitating. People with arthritis struggle daily with pain that not only causes them a lot of discomfort but is also very intrusive on their quality of life and mental health.
There are two kinds of arthritis that are the most common. Osteoarthritis is caused by inflammation in the joints and rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease. Both have been treated for years with a combination of medications including steroids. These drugs can cause some unpleasant side-effects. But using a hot tub gives instant relief and has no side-effects whatsoever. Using a hot tub on a regular basis can lead to greatly reducing or eliminating the need for medicine, depending on the severity of the affliction.
Therapy for Poor Circulation
People that have circulatory system problems have also seen a significant improvement by using a hot tub as part of their therapy. Diseases like diabetes can lead to a painful issue involving poor circulation in the extremities, particularly in the legs. But the heat and massage of a hot tub working together helps to get more blood to move and helps to relieve some of those symptoms.
Using a spa is not going to cure anyone of arthritis or diabetes. But using one on a regular basis can help keep the pain and discomfort at a manageable level so that you can live your life.
